Dr. Jon Siegel, Director of Domain Technology, chairs the Domain Technology Committee responsible for OMG specifications in vertical markets including Finance, Electronic Commerce, Healthcare, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Transportation, and Business Objects. He is the author of numerous magazine articles, and principal author and editor of the book, "CORBA Fundamentals and Programming". He was also the principal lecturer for the OMG-sponsored training session CORBA Academy, and he still presents tutorials regularly. As a spokesperson for OMG, Siegel is a frequent speaker at conferences, meetings, and private corporate briefings around the United States and the world.

Dr. Siegel came to OMG after twelve years with Shell Development Company, the research arm of Shell Oil, where his most recent position was in the Computer Science Research Department. Siegel's background includes extensive experience in distributed computing, object-oriented software development, and geophysical computing, as well as theoretical and computational work at the Argonne National Laboratory. While still at Shell, he served as that company's end-user representative to OMG. For the last year, he also played an active role in several OMG subgroups, chairing the Life Cycle Services Evaluation working group and the End User SIG and serving on the Object Services Task Force. In addition, Siegel served as Shell's liaison to the Open Software Foundation, and served on the OSF End User Steering Committee. He holds a doctoral degree in Theoretical Physical Chemistry from Boston University.
